Or, if you have those USB sticks with the grippy outside rubber and you've had enough with all the fluffs and dust it collects, then this is for you! (this was my inspiration).
This project is very simple, easy, and quick. It can be done in under 10 minutes and doesn't require any skills.
- Some yarn of your colour choice
- a USB flash drive
- 10 minutes
- glue (optional)
Step 1: Some Notes
The USB drive that I used has a rubbery exterior that grips to everything, so I chose not to use glue. You may want to lightly coat the USB drive in some glue, or apply some in strategic places. I also did this to another one of my USB drives with a smooth plastic surface, and it worked just fine. Just remember to wrap it carefully and tightly.
Step 2: Get Started
Step 3: Wrap, Wrap, Wrap!
Now you can begin to wrap the whole USB drive with yarn. You may want to fix up the top edge by going above the cross over strands.
Keep wrapping it around tightly! If you don't it will all fall loose.
Step 4: Finish Off
Once you've pulled the yarn tightly in the knots, cut the yarn tail so it is rather short, but not too short so the knots come undone. Next, using a flat object (I used a pen cap), tuck the end of the yarn under the wrappings as best you can. There may be some frays left over which can be trimmed away.
Step 5: Done!
You can do this project using different colour yarns, ribbons, or twine. You could even sew on some buttons, sequins, or other embellishments to the yarn (carefully!) add even more personal style to it.
